ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

We have just launched Day 2 of our Countdown! Tonight we will have much more content for your enjoyment. We will be featuring Body Swap, Buu's Genocide, Ki Pushback, and the Destructo Disc Split.

Body Swap

The Body swap is an attack used by Captain Ginyu. Using this attack a player can switch bodies, health and powerlevel with another player. Be careful though. If the bodychange fails, you'll turn into a frog and you'll have to chase the frog in your body to get it back. Hold left mouse and aim at a player to activate the attack, then keep holding the mouse until the bodies are changed, or release the mouse button to stop the attack.

Buu's Genocide

The "Genocide" attack is a new weapon that can be used by Superbuu and Kidbuu. The attack was originally used by Superbuu in the Buu Saga when he launched it on earth to kill all remaining humans. It has a pretty long chargetimee, but once fired will spawn little purple blasts that automatically seek out enemies in the surrouding area.

Ki Pushback

The Ki Pushback is a new defense feature that can be actived while powering up. Pressing the block button while charging will send out a Ki wave that will push away any nearby opponents. The Ki wave will only effect players who are within range and who are 50% weaker than your character. A cooldown is in place to prevent spaming.

Destructo Disc Split

I can't honestly say I'm a fan of ESF as it to me, mostly appeared as lots of people with super powers teleporting every two seconds.

But the effects in this little preview actually are really great and accurate.

The gameplay for ESF is definitely a bit more fast paced than what most people are used to.

Wow, can't believe you guys are still working on the mod.
I would've thought for sure that it would be on Source by now.
